imo 7359498

Registered Owner: Income China International - Operator: Metropolis Casinos - Hong Kong

may/june 2017 I’ve JUST discovered that Metropolis Casinos have sold Starry Metropolis to the Macau-based Veltinis International Group (a company which supplies funds to the securities market, but also has equity in a Macau casino) – which explains the “different” I spotted in her funnel markings.
Name is not changed.
